This report from the Romanian minister of the armed forces, Ion Ioniţă, to Romanian leader Nicolae Ceauşescu refers to Moscow's plans for reorganizing the Warsaw Pact. He mentions a letter sent by Soviet Marshal Ivan Yakubovsky to the Romanian Ministry of Armed Forces regarding those plans. Ioniţă lists several alternatives open to Romania, such as leaving the military structure of the Warsaw Pact or agreeing with the Soviet documents, but with reservations - particularly concerning the right of the supreme commander to deploy troops on the territory of member states.
